Poorly matches jobs with requirements, ignores geography and almost never includes a salary range. Salary should be required to post a job by companies.

For businesses looking for talent, ZipRecruiter is a great place to look. It's also not a bad place to go as a Job Seeker, although the profiling seems somewhat clunky.

Zip recruiter has been an extremely efficient, resourceful, and intelligent tool in my current job search. It allows me to utilize my time better with the speed application and multiple distribution options so I can move on faster to the next potential opportunity.

I don't know if Phil is a generic name for many people or a computer follow-up, but I like Phil. He does a great job!

I am not a business that uses your service to find employees. I am a felon that is seeking employment in a customer service based role. I am very transparent about my criminal background, which is listed on my cover letter uploaded to your site. For some reason the potential employers over look my cover letter and only focus on my resume. My resume reflects a very strong 25 year history in Customer Service, 15 years with Wells Fargo Executive Office. This information is inspiring potential employers to seek out an interview with me. However it all falls apart once I mention my felony reflected in my cover letter. It is very frustrating on my end, especially since I am being transparent in my cover letter concerning my background. Expanding your client base to include employers that hire felons would be beneficial. Or strengthen your filters to route appropriate client to applicants. Adding a felony question in the applicant enrollment process to better target your applicants with your clients.
But I must admit, if I did not have a felony in my background I would have had a plethora of employment options. For this I must rate ZipRecruiter high. Please work on the felon friendly clients for the growing mass of felons in America.

I've been getting these emails from ZipRecruiter (usually from "Phil") for a few weeks now, and they've seldom been on target. I get technical writing positions (I have little experience doing tech writing), jobs requiring more or different experience than I have (I thought I highlighted my skills pretty well), and the emails arrive constantly. They're friendly emails, friendly enough that I sometimes think, "This could be a good one," but invariably I've been let down.

Zip seems to be getting closer, but a few more like the ones I have and I'll unsubscribe and stick to LinkedIn and Indeed.

Try to GET a specific job pertinent to my skills. Being sent too many unrelated positions. Too time-consuming to get through two layers of artificial intelligence.

I can't speak for customer service because I have not reached out or used that service with Zip Recruiter but here is my general experience thus far.

Submit an application, and go on with your life, forgetting you even applied, because no employer will even reply. - That is the catchphrase I would float to the company in a marketing meeting. Because that's the reality of Zip Recruiter.

Imagine a convenient service where you can go to view jobs of pretty much any industry, Read job descriptions, apply and have one place to manage your applications. Like, say, LinkedIn, but specific to just jobs and not networking. It sounds great and even has a cool name. Even the word 'Recruiter' is in the name, so it's pretty clear what they are doing. Unless you imagine they're only hiring for sewing jobs on a specific portion of clothing fasteners, but I digress. This model isn't exactly new. Indeed was around, there was Monster for the longest time. Sadly, the idea seems to be a pipe dream. I mean that like, somebody is hitting the pipe over there at Zip Recruiter.

I can probably go look at the data and tell you exactly how many jobs I applied for over time, but my overall experience is that it doesn't matter because if I get any contact beyond "We are so grateful to have received your application/interest in this job" Then I can't remember any. No rejections, no interviews, no idea what happened to my submission. As far as I can tell, either a bunch of people have my resume and personal information, or Zip Recruiter has a ton of documents with my personal information in a database somewhere.

I wish it felt more alive than it does, but it seems this, and every other service like it, except LinkedIn where at least I get rejection notices, are just trying to get you to fill out applications. They never produce any kind of result within any kind of time frame that allows you to feel like it is doing anything valid for your job search.

I sincerely wish this were not the case, because I do like the feature of getting job notifications in my email. It's like hope on a schedule, but it has become just as spammy as the guy with the extra diamonds he can't sell.
